assumed this was an area where america remained head and shoulders above the world. that's where our future lies, how we'll create new jobs for the future. over the last few months i've been having second thoughts. i've been reading these new studies that use not polls of experts but hard data and they suggest that america's lead is slipping. in fact, one with of them looks at the degree to which countries are adjusting and improving their research technology and regulatory policies to stay competitive. and it finds that the united states has made the least progress of the 36 nations in four regions studied. you can go to our website for the actual studies. consider the three most important technologies in alternative energy that are likely to yield big payoffs -- solar, wind and battery power. america doesn't measure up to asia in any of the three. take solar energy. japan and china each have three of the top ten companies in that field. america has only two. let's be clear. america still dominates the world of innovation by any measure, but the rest of the world is on the move and

miscues in its relations with new delhi. in america we think a lot about south asia. and we now call it afpac. fixated on stabilizing afghanistan, washington seems to be relying more and more heavily on pakistan to tackle the taliban problem. in doing so, more disushingly, washington seems to be adopting the world view of the pakistani army, an army that created the taliban and despite $10 billion of aid from the united states, has taken no serious steps to dismantle it. pakistan's long-standing position has been that it has a right to see a pro-pakistani government in afghanistan. the respected expert harrison noted that in an interview him in 1988, pakistan's president demanded "a regime to our liking in kabul." last year a pakistani general told the director of the cia, quote, that pakistan has to support the taliban in afghanistan otherwise india will rein. and now general stan mcchrystal has echoed the pakistani line by increasing indian influence to afghanistan is likely to exacerbate. pakistan and afghanistan here in trouble. but dysfunctional small states don't create opportunit
